On Wednesday (Sept. 6), budding R&B singer MAAD premieres her new single “Wonderland” with Brooklyn MC Jimi Tents.
The addictive earworm finds MAAD entranced by the idea of love. As she tries to rope her way out of this romantic roller coaster, she realizes it’s too hard to overcome. “I’ve been addicted to us and I live too fast/ What about my heart?/ What about my heart?,” she sings on the pre-chorus. Then, she belts out her emotions on the spacey hook. “We’re in a Wonderland/ Why does it feel like we never get enough,” she sings.
“The creative process behind ‘Wonderland’ was such a special one,” MAAD tells Billboard. “I worked on the track with Lostboy and Hannah Yadi on the final day of my London trip earlier this year, and when writing, Hannah had me jot down a ton of feelings and thoughts on paper. I had never written a song this way before, but it was the first time I was thinking more about my feelings instead of the song’s structure and I couldn’t be any happier with the way it came to life.”
